I love that when someone says 'It can’t be done,' DPR people say, 'Really, let us show you!'
- Role: Management Committee Member
- Favorite DPR Core Value: Enjoyment: I think this one can be easily misunderstood to be all about parties and after-work events (and don’t get me wrong, I love the parties and after-work events) but I truly find work to be fun and intrinsically satisfying. I’m inspired by our people.
- Favorite Thing About Construction: I’ve been working with my hands since I was 12 years old. I have loved getting to the end of a hard-working day, looking back and thinking, “Look what we just accomplished.” We are builders - builders of things, builders of people, builders of dreams.
- Your Hero: Mr. Incredible. I actually think he’s the least ‘"super" of his family…but that’s why I love him. He plays his role and helps the rest of his super family honor and enact their own super powers.
- Word to the Wise (advice): Show up, listen carefully, speak your truth, and let go of the consequences.
